Melker delighted with testing form
14 April 2011 – Nigel Melker was left in high spirits as the final GP3 pre-season test came to an end in Barcelona on Thursday. The Dutchman set the only time of the three-day test under the 1:38.000 barrier, and he is thrilled with the progress his RSC Mücke Motorsport team has made at the Circuit de Catalunya this week.
"I think it’s really good," he told GPUpdate.net at the Montmeló track on Thursday afternoon. "The first day I was third, the second day I was second and today I was the fastest; I think that was really good and I really like this track. We have developed the car a lot and I think every day was a step better and better."
When asked if he could repeat the strong start he made in the F3 Euroseries earlier this year, Melker replied: "I hope so, I will do my best and there’s a big chance of having a good start. It looks very good and I’m really quick, so I think I can do a better job in GP3 than last year."
